This high-level side event taking place at COP25 in Madrid, Spain, will focus on the growing international momentum around net-zero targets, and how this can drive more ambitious national climate action in line with the science and decreasing costs of clean technologies. Government representatives and experts will also explore how governance frameworks for delivering net-zero goals, like the UK Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, can be effective tools for driving action. Countries will describe lessons learnt and highlight the political challenges and opportunities that have shaped the process for developing NDCs and long-term strategies.
